About this Item

A choice selection of Cicero's philosophical works edited and with extensive commentary from German humanist Hieronymus Wolf (1516?80), here in an enlarged and corrected second edition issued from the => Hervagius press. Wolf was a student of Melanchthon's "who after a wandering life, settled at Augsburg, first as secretary and librarian to the wealthy merchant Johann Jakob Fugger, and next as Rector of the newly-founded gymnasium which he ruled from 1557 until his death" (Sandys, II, p. 268). Works annotated in depth include Cicero's De officiis, Cato maior de senectute, De amicitia, "Paradoxa VI" from Paradoxa stoicorum, and "Scipionis somnium" from De re publica. Each work has a sectional title-page and index. Provenance: Early 17th-century ownership inscription on title "Ex bibliotheca Magister Joannes Makgill" (a Johannes Makgill graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 1602); 18th- or early 19th- century signature of George Blair on front fly-leaf; 18th-century signature of Daniel MacKinnon on title-page. (Our thanks to Eric White of Princeton for deciphering the Makgill's last name and his university affiliation.) Folio (31.9 cm; 12.5"). [5] ff., 732 cols., 733?50 pp., [26] ff., 262 cols., [22] pp., 134 cols., [9] ff., 60 cols., [4] ff., 62 cols., [7] pp. Lacks an internal blank and the final three leaves of index. Index Aurel. 139.245; Adams C1769; Schweiger, Handbuch der classischen Bibliographie, II, 200?01; VD16 C3211. On Wolf see: Schweiger, Handbuch der classischen Bibliographie, II, p. 268. Recent blue-grey paper?covered boards; spine with printed paper labels, new endpapers, all edges speckled red. Age-toning, some spotting, and light to moderately heavy waterstaining throughout; perhaps a dozen leaves with corners bumped and perhaps another dozen with minor, very unobtrusive touches of worming, a few light markings in pencil and ink. Title-page and three index leaves artfully repaired with Japanese tissue, the first with no loss of text and the latter with some loss; an internal blank and three index leaves lacking, otherwise complete. A well-used and imperfect but solid and still useful compilation of extensively analyzed classical texts, and from an important press. Bookseller Inventory # 36087
